    47 CFR Parts 2 and 95

    [ET Docket No. 0859; FCC 1254]

    Medical Area Body Network

    AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission. ACTION: Final rule.

    SUMMARY: This document expands the Commissions Medical Device Radiocommunications Service (MedRadio) rules to permit the development of new Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) devices in the 2360 2400 MHz band. The MBAN technology will provide a flexible platform for the wireless networking of multiple body transmitters used for the purpose of measuring and recording physiological parameters and other patient information or for performing diagnostic or therapeutic functions, primarily in health care facilities. This platform will

    enhance patient safety, care and comfort by reducing the need to physically connect sensors to essential monitoring equipment by cables and wires. This decision is the latest in a series of actions to expand the spectrum available for wireless medical use. The Commission finds that the risk of increased interference is minimal and is greatly outweighed by the benefits of the MBAN rules.

    DATES: Effective October 11, 2012, except for 95.1215(c), 95.1217(a)(3), 95.1223, and 95.1225, which contain information collection requirements that

The Director of the Federal Register will approve the incorporation by reference in 95.1223 concurrently with the published Office of Management and Budget approval of this section.

    Summary of the First Report and Order

    1. This First Report and Order (R&O) expands the Commissions part 95 MedRadio rules to permit the development of new Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) devices in the 2360 2400 MHz band. The MBAN technology will provide a flexible platform for the wireless networking of multiple body transmitters used for the purpose of measuring and recording physiological parameters and other patient information or for performing diagnostic or therapeutic functions, primarily in health care facilities. This platform will enhance patient safety, care and comfort by reducing the need to physically wire sensors to essential monitoring equipment. As the numbers and types of medical radio devices continue to expand, these technologies offer tremendous power to improve the state of health care in the United States. The specific MBAN technology that can be deployed under our revised rules promises to enhance patient care as well as to achieve efficiencies that can reduce overall health care costs.

    2. The Report and Order adopts rules for MBAN operations on a secondary, non-interference basis under our license-by-rule framework. To address spectrum compatibility concerns with respect to incumbent operations under this approach, the Commission is establishing a process by which MBAN users will register and coordinate the use of certain equipment. In a concurrent Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, the Commission proposes the c
